Golden Ages concert visuals

I was invited by Francis Tseng of Golden Ages to create audio-reactive visuals for the band’s concerts.

The visuals revolve around a rotating spiral thing made of balls and lines, inspired by ctenophora and zooplankton. There are 7 “scenes”, one for each song in their set list. With each scene, the visuals becomes more distorted and more agitated. It was built with Processing and reacted to the sound of the band fed to the computer during the concert. The post-processing effects (blurring, glowing, displacement) were done with GLSL shaders. Above is a screen capture of this audio visualization fed with the MP3 of Everything Will Be Alright (official video).

This was a fun project and I really like how it turned out. Looking forward to work on more projects of this kind.
